Responsible Parties

Often, when an employee has been injured on a construction site, they are eligible to collect workers’ compensation.  Unfortunately, many times this amount of money is not enough to cover all medical costs after an accident, and possibly not even cover lost wages.  Construction site employees who have been injured at work may not only be eligible for workers’ compensation but may also be able to sue parties other than their employer for additional monetary damages.  Parties that may be responsible for your injuries include:

  • General contractor
  • Owner of the building
  • Construction or project manager
  • Equipment manufacturers

Causes of Building Collapse

Foundation

If the foundation of a building is not done properly, the entire structure of the building may be compromised, and the building is apt to collapse.

Heavy Loads

If the weight of the equipment or other items in a building is too heavy for the structure of the building, there is a danger of building collapse.

Poor Design

If the building design is not structurally sound to hold what is necessary inside the building, there is the chance of building collapse.

Due to the complicated nature of building structure, when a building collapses, it takes engineers and design experts to determine the cause of the collapse.  Our law firm is able to work with these engineers and design experts and discover the cause of the collapse, and to take action against those responsible for your injuries.  We can recover medical costs, lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering.
